's ed lavandera is in aurora for us. ed, what do we know about this package? >> reporter: well, we're still trying to gather information on what exactly is inside that package, wolf. but as you mentioned that law enforcement official telling cnn that on monday police and fbi discovered a package that was apparent apparently sent by james holmes, the 24-year-old suspected gunman. now it's unclear obviously if this package was indeed sent by him, it was clearly sent before he was taken into custody. it arrived at some point on monday at the university mail room. we've also been told by hospital officials over the last couple of days this is something we've been monitoring for some time that there were two packages that were suspicious and were being looked into, one found in the mail room and also one that was actually delivered to a university professor. so we've been trying to nail down more information on this. and we'll continue to do so, wolf. >> what's the university of colorado saying about all of this, ed? >> reporter: well, now that the details have come out that this packag
us about that, alicia. >> reporter: yeah. judge william sylvester will also address the motions by the defense as well as by the media. 20 media organizations including fox news are requesting that records relating to the case be unsealed arguing that the public has a legitimate interest in knowing what actions were taken by multiple officials in the case including information relating to dr. lynn fenton. she is a psychiatrist at the university of colorado medical center, who according to court documents was treating holmes and to whom he sent a package. fox and other news outlets said that package contained a notebook which holmes reportedly dei would at that the killings. the defense has filed a motion that package be turned over immediately. bill: a lot to go through. alicia acuna thank you. the deeper it gets. more coming up on the story. holmes would potentially face hundreds of charges today. plus what about his behavior in and outside of the courtroom? is it an act? our panel will debate that. heather. heather: three of the victims were laid to recent over the weekend in
, send them to us. >> dave: anyway, we'll talk about that later on. we start with politics, as you know, it's been on the campaign trail, the obama campaign going right after mitt romney, of course, and mentioning that they thought he could have committed a felony in regard to his time at bain capital when he left to run the olympics. the president on saturday staying on the attack in virginia and again going after mitt romney. >> alisyn: then it was interesting to hear the president spokesperson yesterday say this goal for the campaign. here is a quote, of course the president wants to have a high brow debate about these policy issues and what the american people actually care about. that's from general. you know, of course, people on the other side of just laughing about this, because how high brow is it to go for the felony charge of your opponent? >> a swiss bank account, or bermuda business or whatever. >> alisyn: of course the president would say these are all important things to raise, the american public needs to know, if somehow their prospective presidential candidate is misle

country that killed 12 and wound dozens more. so what's it done to us? what has this event stirred in this country? made us different from the people who watch this program, say, just a week ago. i want to know. i want to hear again the many separate human actions that night that tell us what kind of a country we are and where we are headed. i want to hear not just about the villain and the victims, but also the heroes. the impulsive good guys that night. the ones that hemming way described as courage, grace under fire and under pressure. i want to know how aurora is going to affect this country. us. today brought the announce many that denver, colorado, just miles from the tragedy will host the first presidential debate this autumn. this all but guarantees that the two presidential candidates, president obama and mitt romney will be asked about the tragedy. what should they say? let's ask governor ed rendell what barack obama should say. it will be interesting. to start with, let's their personal stories following a tragedy like aurora. look at how heartbreaking they are and tell
that strange to the congress. >> well, then give us some assurance. tell us that behind the scenes at least there's some constructive conversation going on about how to deal with this fiscal cliff before we go over it. >> well, i believe that the budget priorities committee, the committee on budget priorities and policies, they have said to us that this is not really a cliff in the common sense of the word, but more like a slope because i do believe that even after the elections, there is plenty enough time for us to come back here in a lame duck and do what is necessary to extend budgetary considerations for at least a year while we'll have time to really work on things we need to do. and that is to have the massive overhaul of our tax code. i think that we're in the trouble we're in today not so much because of people's priorities but because we have a problem with our tax code that needs to be fixed. i think that's what's important about that vote today. >> but, congressman, that approach of, we'll all get together and work together after the election, someday never seems to come. you we
. if you want to join us on social media, you can send us a tweet. you can also send us an e-mail. a poll about the said of the economy and one of the questions asked was the role washington should play. here is the right appeared this is from "the miami herald." >> again, the headlines, taking a role -- taking a look at what role government should take, whether robocalls and is helping or hurting the economy when it comes to helping it grow. that is what we will ask you this morning. if you want to mention the question, but then, you can give a call in one of three lines/party. is uncle sam helping or hurting the economy? this is from "the baltimore sun." the headline is "the american economy stuck in low gear." again, and uncle sam, helping or hurting the economy? here's the headline one more time. one of the take away from this is that 22% of democrats say that the government -- is that 72% of democrats say that the government should solve the economic problem. again, of sam, helping or hurting the economy? caller: the gop house is hurting the economy. the stimulus did not work. it ran
bragging that he could do it, but it was also a warning to us. what if the next time that happens it's a larger utility or a group of smaller utilities around the country, maybe water, maybe electricity, maybe gas, and this time they're not just warning us or showing us our vulnerability but they're actually going to disrupt the flow of electricity or water to people who depend on it. that's -- that's the kind of crisis that we face and why it is so urgent that we deal with this. so let me come back to my dream. my goal here is that as we go on this week, we're able to submit a manager's amendment, but it's not just from the managers, senators collins, rockefeller, feinstein and i. we're joined by a much broader group and we form a broad bipartisan consensus here to protect our country from a terrible danger that is real, urgent and growing. mr. president, i always like to -- i was thinking about it again in this case -- think back in these moments. since i don't see anybody else on the floor, i will undulling myself and go back to a hot july day in philadelphia -- indulge myself and
involved in the conversation, here are the numbers -- you can get in touch with us via social media -- we want to begin by showing an article that we got from "the hill" here to talk to us more about that on the telephone is carlo muniz, a reporter on "the hill." guest: thanks for having me. host: about this proposed work group the senator ayotte is shopping around the capital. does this sound like another super committee to fix what the other super committee could not fix? guest: in a certain sense, you are right. from my understanding, the working group the senator ayotte was gauging support for would really be focused on the one-year proposals that republicans in the house and the senate or looking at. senator ayotte along with senator mccain and senator kyl and senator rubio and others are looking at a one-year postponement of sequestration which is scheduled to go into effect early in january. rep buck mckean is looking at a similar program. i think the working group she was looking at, i don't think these working groups would tackle the entire sequestration issue the way the sup
to make sure that we are using for example the small business review process to ensure that the rules ask crafted can ease compliance where necessary especially with respect to smaller firms. smaller firms be they depositories jarmon depositories are by their nature less able to easily shoulder significant compliance costs tend to be more fixed than variable which means to the extent it firm is smaller on the compliance board and would be more biting and constraining and so the basic to make sure we are attentive as applied to the various regulatory requirements. >> which is one of my concerns. i keep getting that feedback from our small banks and credit unions about the compliance costs with the new rules coming out. within this efp, those are dillinger of disclosure issues as well as other disclosure forms. are you all communicating so when qr m comes out we are not going to have different ways of compliance issues for the small banking institutions? are you all talking together so it's going to be very fluid and we and are not going to have one rule come out but would then be modified
and let them use it to increase the voice of private schools, strip you of your voice because he doesn't think that you all know much about how to educate, and he characterizes you and his allies characterize you as not caring about -- not caring about the students, but about yourself. my jill is little when she says that teaching is not what she does. it's who she is. [applause] these guys don't get that. i don't think they don't understand why you chose to teach in the first place. [applause] i honest to god don't think they understand. and by the way, like in politics, in business, religious hierarchy, there is really good teachers and there is really lousy teachers. there is a really lousy teachers and some plain good teachers. we are no different than any other profession in the world. but we are a profession.

and that often kills them. to put a little close on this and a chance for us to converse, what is fascinating is the degree of duality in the great executive we studied. for example, is it 20 mile marching or defining moment in their capacity to do both? 20 mile marches with discipline and superb performance in a defining luck event moments that are out of their control. why did they do so much better? in the book, we noticed that over time, great executives will recall people had the genius of "and"as opposed to the tyranny of "or." it is humility and will. it is confront the brutal facts and having faith. it is productive and paranoid. when we stand back and look at a truly great enterprise, we see a huge duality under any great enterprise. that is what we call, preserved because for and stimulate progress - the core and stimulate progress. no great company exists if it does not have a core or stimulates progress. they are willing to change their practices, their strategies, there structures without compromising core values. they understand the difference between their core values and their
